Several weeks ago, a car owner drive me a BMW 2014, and found it’s not compatible with my autocom. Then tested other more car models after 2014; it can’t work neither. Asked a friend working in a repairing garage, he recommended me VDM UCANDAS.
As he suggested, the original UCANDAS VDM V3.8 wireless automotive diagnosis system is advertised better than autocom, it claims one-year free update at official website, and works with newest cars up to 2014.
This is the genuine VDM UCANDAS package, arrived this week, cost €209. It came with the main unit with OBDII cable, software driver and USB cable. The package is very simple compared with Launch X431 my maintenance friend bought, which packed with many adapters.
I installed it successfully on my Win7 ( it claims Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8. No WP8/Win8 RT can support it). Very easy to install with the help of user video (link: http://www.eobdtool.co.uk/wholesale/vdm-ucandas-wireless-automotive-diagnosis-system.html, you can get it from www.eobdtool.co.uk), no need to activate.
The biggest advantage for me is the supported WIFI connection and Bluetooth. You know, how convenient it is if you have ever diagnosed any vehicles: D
Besides, this UCANDAS VDM covers a wide range of vehicles (it is said that UCANDAS VDM V3.8 supports almost all cars in the market.). Except diagnosing my BMW 2014, I also helped to do programming for my bro’s LandRover suv 2013 lr4 successfully.
A nice purchase.
Ps. I am just a customer, share what I experienced here, wish it can help you.:cheer2

VDM UCANDAS Full System Diagnostic Tool is highly efficient professional partner, an essential workmate.
VDM have two connection ways: wired and wireless connection.
Choose USB when connecting with cable, and under demo mode. Choose WIFI when testing wirelessly, and use the software before connecting VDM with cars.
1.Connecting VDM with cars.
2.Waiting for 10s, then running ucandas.exe software.
3.Reading system information of VDM.
Usually, when you bought an OBDTool, you will wonder whether it can work on this vehicle part. Actually, it is not easy to have a conclusion on diagnostic tools functions, for its functions vary from one car model to another, mainly depending on vehicles design.
Here we take VDM UCANDAS for example; you could see its special functions today on Benz model. And from one compatible part of it, we could have a better look at it. Generally, VDM ucandas mainly works with drive chassis, body, information and communication, seats and doors, air conditioning and so on. And Benz covers these systems, too.
With the use of this car diagnostic tool, you could have special function on Benz Drive, including initial startup, control unit adaptations, read coding and change if necessary, read coding and/or transfer download to new control unit, replace component Y74 (Pressure control valve), replace component B28/8 (Pressure differential sensor (DPF)), learning of the throttle valve stop, learn air conditioning, activate fuel pump, adjustment On temperature of heater booster(Electric heater booster), injector classification/Injector shutoff, transmission oil temperature, emergency running, display adaptation data, resetting of adaptation data, performing adaptation, and coding according to plant data etc.
Chassis includes initial startup, control unit adaptations, road test, learning processes, resetting of variant locking, erase zero point offset error of component N49(steering angle sensor), deactive system, active system, bleed brake system, calibration of the plunger travel sensors, level calibration, load adjustment and replacement of component B24/15.
Body functions: initial startup, control unit adaptations, read coding and changes if necessary, coded vehicle data, variant coding, and chassis number, setting of limit position of excess force limiter, zero position adjustment and panoramic sliding roof.
Information and Communication: iInitial startup, control unit adaptations, read coding and change if necessary, assyst Setting, general servicing, confirm overall maintenance, oil change, clock Setting, reset odometer to 0 km, radio parameters, TV parameters, TV Active, restart of optical ring, seats and doors, initialization of power closing, read coding and change if necessary, and normalize left power window.
Air Conditioning covers initial startup, read coding and change if necessary, normalizing of position motors, check of adjustment range of postioning motors, variant coding, and control unit reset.
